Bruckner, Kentucky, Aug. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The use of technology and connectivity in agriculture is a hot topic, and Fastline Fast Track, a bi-weekly podcast, spoke with representatives of three major industry players for Episode 16, recorded at the AAEA the Ag Communicators Network convention in Minneapolis.

Representatives from New Holland Agriculture, Farmers Edge and Conservis joined Brent Adams, host, on the program.

In 2020, equipment manufacturer New Holland will celebrate its 125th anniversary, but the company will kick off the party later this month at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois.

In advance of that celebration, Luke Zerby, Brand Marketing Manager, Precision Land Management, and Christine Chleboun, Director of Commercial Marketing, joined Fastline Fast Track’s Brent Adams to talk about the company’s rich history, as well as some of its latest product innovations.

“The use of data is driving many of the decisions being made on the farm today,” Adams said. “Farmers are making decisions about where and when to place seed, fertilizer and water based on detailed data they are receiving from satellites and sensors. This eliminates input waste and potentially increases yield, translating into a healthy return on investment.”

On the episode, Wendy Elias-Gagnon, Communications & Digital Engagement Manager for Winnipeg-based Farmers Edge and Patrick Christie, Chairman and CEO of Minneapolis-based Conservis discussed their proprietary technologies, which help farmers understand their soil conditions, input impacts, weather and other factors that will help them understand in real time whether their field is making or losing money.

In addition to the agricultural guests, Adams chats with up-and-coming country music star Josh Gallagher, a contestant on Season 11 of NBC’s “The Voice.” In a segment recorded at the legendary Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville, Tennessee, Gallagher also performs three songs from his new self-titled EP, including his current single, “Look At Me Now.”
